Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American musician, composer, songwriter, and bandleader. His work is characterized by nonconformity, free-form improvisation, sound experiments, musical virtuosity, and satire of American culture. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa composed rock, pop, jazz, jazz fusion, orchestral and musique concrète works, and produced almost all of the 60-plus albums that he released with his band the Mothers of Invention and as a solo artist. Zappa also directed feature-length films and music videos, and designed album covers. He is considered one of the most innovative and stylistically diverse musicians of his era.

Musician Frank Zappa made more than 60 albums during his career. Flouting convention and fusing musical genres, Zappa’s music was often politically charged and intentionally shocking.
